The title may be a bit confusing, so I'll explain. When I use a search engine, whether it be google, yahoo, anything.. the results redirect me to sites like yawarez.net or findstuff.com or some other ad site. I've tried this with a few different browers: Firefox (my main and current browser), IE, and Opera. I get this same result while using the above browsers. The only browser that It doesn't happen with is Google Chrome, which I strongly dislike. However, when I type a sites address into my URL bar, it directs me to the correct site everytime. I ONLY get redirected when clicking a link brought up by a search engine. I followed the 8 steps; Below are my logs. EDIT: A little bit more info: I tried system restores; none of my restore points worked. I'm not sure if that's also a symptom or just coincidence. anyone? Nobody knows anything about this?.. I guess reformatting is my only option then. Thanks anyways. Wow.. now I even get errors when I try to reformat using WipeDrive. I have no idea what to do, Please help!
